Hello everyone, So I have a problem when I create a folder in my bookmark bar. I create a folder by category (unnamed for aesthetics). Once I have classified my favorites in these different folders after reopening Firefox, all my favorites are in a single folder. I specify that all these favorites were mostly imported from Chrome but that the problem persists with favorites added from firefox

I am developing a website. I have uploaded the files to my webhost server. When I visit the page I get the following error.

The page isn’t redirecting properly

An error occurred during a connection to www.themindcreative.net.

This problem can sometimes be caused by disabling or refusing to accept cookies.

Never seen this before, been using this webhost for over a decade and numerous websites. This only started with the new website and after the latest Firefox update. I have a support ticket in with Dreamhost but have not heard back.

Obviuosly I cant just allow all cookies - thats ridiculous. Every other website I visit displays just fine and I have most cookies turned off with the strict/strong tracking protection turned on in Firefox preferences.

Any idea what this 'redirect' error message means? And how to fix it?

Cheers Adam

How do i go about restoring my old firefox data? Firefox suggested restarting the browser and once it opened back up it deleted all my extentions etc. and placed an 'old firefox data' folder on my desktop. I tried finding solutions but nothing worked. I typed in about:profile. Went to default profile. I clicked on Local Directory - Show in folder. And then pasted everything from my old firefox data folder into that. And nothing worked. Any help????

I have problems with multiple sites that claim that third-party cookies are blocked and do not work even though though the Enhanced Tracking Protection is disabled for the site (the shield icon is grey and striked-through). In particular it is teams.microsoft.com and Instapaper (their saving bookmarklet sends me always to a site reading "enable unrestricted third-party cookie access for www.instapaper.com" - though this might be a different issue than Teams).

I have read https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/enhanced-tracking-protection-firefox-desktop?redirectslug=enable-and-disable-cookies-website-preferences&redirectlocale=en-US#w_how-to-tell-when-firefox-is-protecting-you and https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/websites-say-cookies-are-blocked-unblock-them (trying even to "forget" the teams website; not doing the full wipe out of everything).

How to troubleshoot / fix this? I am a technical person so I can dig into it if just somebody points me in the right direction...

Thank you!

Hi.

Can someone please tell me why my personal network site - https://www.myanimatorssketchclub.com

- is suddenly not loading on my Firefox browser? It is hosted by Mighty Networks. 

I have not had trouble with it before - for months - and none of my other regularly used sites fail to load. I note too that the same network site loads with no problems on other browser. Even refreshing, restarting or opening in 'Safe Mode" on Firefox does not change things.

I have attached a screen capture to show what I see.

I hope this can be fixed as using Firefox is really important to me and I don't want to have to move to another browser if this proves a permanent thing.

Thanks for your help!

Firefox Developer v80 Mac OS failes to render new css even after cache flush and reload

I've been using Firefox Developer version for some time now on Mac OS and have never had a problem like this before.

However, since version 80, Firefox Developer fails to render the new css after a change and save has been made to the style sheet even after multiple browser refreshes. Caching on the server end has been disabled so I'm really trying to find a solution to this issue as it has forced me to find alternative browsers to develop with like Safari since Firefox Developer has become unusable for me.

I've gone through and performed manual cache flushes on the browser from the settings/preferences panel. On occasion, by quitting Firefox Developer edition and relaunching it will then render the new changes but only after a quit and relaunch and sometimes using a private window as well. This is happening with multiple hosting services so it's not any particular provider.

This is most annoying. I've even reset Firefox Developer a number of times to default settings without any extensions etc. and still the problem exists.

Earlier version of Firefox Developer don't seem to be exhibiting this problem. I'm not running any proxy's or special configurations with the settings either.

Any assistance to finding a workaround would be greatly appreciated or I'm going to have to stop using Firefox Developer version altogether.

Thank you,

Why does Firefox feed so much data to Google?

A while back, I discovered a Google plugin hidden within Firefox. I figured maybe one thing was fine until I realized that Widevine actually did some bad stuff to your OS, since it needs to access the internal OS to block screenshots and screen recordings. Today, I discovered that geolocation also uses Google servers, and in the process of turning it off I also discovered that there is this "Safe Browsing" that also uses Google. Looking even further, even some of the privacy things redirect to Google. I haven't even mentioned that the default search engine is Google. Even if Google paid you to make them the default, you could create a prompt on the first launch asking for search engine, with Google selected by default but another search engine (like DDG) recommended. All of this Google software is likely sucking on our data.

Now while writing this post, I noticed something even worse. Why are Google servers on the filter whitelists? This is uncool. I understand, maybe your website needs to detect Firefox to function correctly, and antifingerprint would break it. But WHY GOOGLE? All of this seems to be going against the goal of privacy. How are you supposed to expect a random person to go directly to about:add-ons, disable Google Widevine, go to about:preferences, disable safe browsing, go to about:config, enter the "danger" zone confidently, and delete Google from the 10,000 times it appears in the config?

I installed Firefox on my mac a few months ago. Worked a LONG time to save/organize all of my bookmarks. For whatever reason.. was logged off or kicked off of Firefox. When I logged back in-all of my bookmarks were gone. I looked all over the site for help....and after trying one suggestion-thankfully....I was able to have a few of them returned to my sidebar. I am still missing many. I again searched all over the Help section; however, I have been unable to get them restored. If I manually re-enter as many as I can remember-how do I assure this doesn't happen again? And secondly, anyway I can continue to work to re-install the rest of them? I am missing my most recent bookmarks and unfortunately...I cannot recall the sites for the specific articles I wanted to research. If anyone is able to help me, please use simple computer terms/directions as I am not an IT specialist. :) THANK YOU in advance!!!

I recently purchased a 2020 iMac and have found accessing my yahoo mail account cumbersome. Each time I open Firefox, I have to start from scratch to access my yahoo emails (search for yahoo mail sign-in link, enter yahoo email account, enter yahoo password). Incredibly time-consuming and frustrating. On my previous iMac (purchased 2008!), yahoo mail opened immediately when Firefox opened, making it very easy to quickly check my email. I have been unable to reproduce this rapid access route, despite spending a few hours on the phone with Yahoo (which finally gave up and suggested asking Firefox). Bookmark for yahoo mail vanishes when Firefox is closed and then re-opened. Same for top sites. Direct yahoo email access remains only as long as Firefox remains open. I would appreciate help in creating an efficient route from opening Firefox to reading my yahoo emails. Thanks!

Hi there!

I would is there any way to have Firefox search bar history prioritize subdirectories? I typically only visit these subdirectory URLs and not the main one.

For example, when I go to reddit I would want to visit "https://www.reddit.com/r/all/", but Firefox puts "https://www.reddit.com/" at the top of the list when I type in "red".

The same happens for sites such as Discord. I would like "https://discordapp.com/app" to be the first in the list when I type, but "https://discordapp.com/".

I have tried to search on this forum and wasn't able to find anything. I have also added a bookmark to the subdirectories and bumped up "places.frecency.bookmarkVisitBonus" to 5000. However, the basic URL remains at the top of the suggestions.
